Traffic Police Ensures No Fee Charged for New White License Plate
TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - The Indonesian Traffic Police (Korlantas) planned to replace the existing black license plate for private vehicles into the new white license plate starting June 2022. The Korlantas Director Brigadier General Yusri Yunus ensured that no additional fees will be charged for the replacement of the license plate.
“No [additional fees],” said Yusri as quoted from the National Police's Traffic Management Centre (NTMC) website today, May 19, 2022.
Head of Sub-Directorate for STNK (vehicle registration documents), Sr. Comr. Taslim Chairuddin issued a similar statement. He underlined that vehicle owners will only be required to pay for the five-year tax and then get a new license plate.
Taslim also said that the license plate replacement will be carried out in stages. Vehicles that have not reached the end of their five-year STNK validity do not need to shift into white license plates. This means, vehicles at the end of their five-year STNK validity will be among the first given the white license plates upon renewal of STNK.
“It will not be carried out simultaneously because of different validity periods of the TNKB (motor vehicles number plate),” he added.
According to Taslim, the Traffic Police had completed the auction process for the procurement of white license plates so that the replacement was expected to be kick-started next month.
“Hopefully this starts as soon as possible. Could it start in June? It could be. For sure, the white license plate will be provided this year,” he concluded.
